SWARMS

DO I HAVE A HONEY BEE SWARM? 

AND WHAT SHOULD I DO ABOUT IT?

We are often approached about winged, flying creatures, especially in the spring and summer period, when they are at their most active simply working and are no cause for alarm.

Above is a video of a Honey Bee Swarm in flight. It can look and sound quite frightening but the bees are focused on finding their queen and then on finding a new home.


If you see a swarm like this keep your distance, go indoors, close windows and doors. Watch the swarm settle, it's fascinating. Then call us to come and collect them. 


Below is a photo of a settled swarm

Tree Bumble Bee's

The Tree Bumblebee is a relatively new foreign species which has become very common in the UK and their nests are on the increase.

In Cheshire collectors receive hundreds of calls each year reporting these bees as swarms.

These are NOT swarms, they are nests.

These bees typically nest in the eaves of houses and bird boxes.

They are easily recognized as there are usually between 5 and 20 bees flying outside the nest all day, on warm sunny days.

The nests are established in early spring but flying males appear later in the spring and summer. The nests die out naturally in the late summer and autumn.

If the nest is in the eaves it is not likely to cause any problems as the bees flying round the entrance are all male and do not have a sting.

If they are in a bird box, high up or away from people passing by, again they should not be a cause for concern.

If they are near to head height or near children or animals, constant movement outside the entrance could promote a defensive response and may result in stinging. In this case you should contact your local council or a pest controller to either move the box or, if absolutely necessary, exterminate the bees.

My First Honey Bee Swarm Collection this year 8/4/2017

                                                                                                                      Moles

  I am an independent, traditional mole catcher in Cheshire. Whether you have a couple of molehills on your lawn or dozens in a paddock, I can usually get rid of the moles in a few days.

I will need visit your site several times, I work in a relatively limited area to keep my charges moderate. Please call to see if I cover your address.

  

  I offer a friendly, personal service &  No poisons or gases


  Do not wait until the moles have caused a considerable amount of damage. Much of the problem will be unseen and left alone the moles will reproduce. Contact us immediately. It will be faster, easier and cheaper in the long run.


  Molehills damage the roots of young plants, flowers and vegetables. and ruin the appearance of your lawns & garden areas.

  

  In the UK in 2010 there were estimated to be in excess of 40 MILLION moles. The banning of most poisons at the end of 2006 means their numbers have been on the increase.


The safest and most humane method of mole control is the traditional technique of trapping. 

Our traps are all humane and designed to dispatch the mole instantly. 

They are normally checked every 24hrs as a minimum.

Rats

                          Brown Rat                                                                  Black Rat                                          

Rats are a worldwide pest due to their capacity to cause structural damage, to spread life-threatening diseases, and to compete with man for food.

The species most commonly found in Europe is known as the Norway Rat (Rattus norvegicus). A less commonly found species, the Black or Roof Rat, (Rattus rattus), is largely restricted to port areas.

Rats live alongside man, invading his buildings and eating his food. Rats transmit disease, which are potentially fatal to man such as Weil's disease and murine typhus. They also carry organisms which can damage man's health such as Salmonella bacteria, viruses and parasites such as nematodes, worms and fleas.

Damage by rats to the fabric of buildings can be costly. Fires can easily be started after a rat has gnawed a cable. Gas and water pipes are also at risk and rat burrowing can undermine foundations and damage water courses.

Physically very strong, rats have been known to survive for two days in open water, to swim a mile in open sea and to get through a gap of less than 25mm.


The preferred and recommended eradication of rats by official pest control bodies is by the use of Traps. I use humane traps.  A snap trap or Fenn trap when used properly, kills the rat instantly with a bar that comes down on its neck.  The problem is that they may not be set properly by untrained users causing unnecessary suffering.  I also use catch alive traps where the bait is put into a cage, the rat touches a plate when accessing the bait and the spring loaded door snaps shut to trap the rat inside the cage. The rat is then humanely Dispatched. Another method that I use successfully but as a last resort is a Glue Board. This Is placed on a known rat run and the rat is caught on the board. Using this method the board has to be checked every 4 hours or monitored by a trail cam. If a rat is caught on the board it has to be dispatched humanely as soon as it can be to avoid any unnecessary suffering. If all these methods fail then this is the only time that I will resort to using poison, this is to prevent any not target species for example Barn Owls, cats and dogs suffering secondary poisoning.
